Abstract

Abstract The PWM in vitro induced Ig secretion by blood lymphocytes was examined in 11 women before and after local postoperative radiation therapy (45.0 Gy) for breast cancer. It was observed that both the IgM and IgG secretions were significantly reduced at completion of irradiation and remained below the pretreatment levels 3 months after irradiation. IgM secretion was reduced to the highest extent.
